  • Device problem occurs on NETGEAR WNDR3700
  • OpenWRT Release : SNAPSHOT 19.07 (kernel 4.19.
  • Steps to reproduce

Upgrade form 18.06 (ar71xx target) to 19.07 (new ath79 target), the WLAN2.4 is working fine but the WLAN5.0 hang each time with

Keeping the configuration when upgrading from ar71xx to ath79 is not guaranteed to work.
